Had an email from my Council about working as a PO for next year's local elections (and Police and Crime Commissioner elections) on May 6th. It came with a lot of questions about the suitability of my polling station for holding a socially distanced vote. They are having to do a risk assessment on every single polling station within the city (that's nearly a hundred), so imagine that all Councils are having to do the same.

They're proposing to take on extra staff to manage the voters as 'greeters', and I suspect that a lot of people won't want to work as Poll Clerks if the situation is anything like it is at the moment.

Would you do a day in a Polling Station for £200-300 if we still have Covid-19?
Yeah for that sort of money I would

I would probably do it. I'd get exposed to the virus if I worked in a supermarket or in a shop, and would definitely not make that much money!

I’ve just had a look on my council’s website but I can’t see anything about this, am I too late Jon?

It's only March so I would hope there is still time - Which is your council?

I work at my local council offices and a lot of the jobs go to people who are already working for them but our council do put the Election work under the Jobs section and you have to apply online and then if successful you will be called to do some training
